Emma Raducanu was eclipsed by Liudmila Samsonova at the Citi Open


Second seed Emma Raducanu’s run at the Citi Open ended in a quarterfinal loss to Liudmila Samsonova in Washington.

Despite a tight opening set, Raducanu was eventually overwhelmed 7-6 (6) 6-1 by world No. 60 Russia.

Samsonova saved four set points en route to winning the first set before heading home for the game in the second with nine aces and 33 winners.

Raducanu proved her own worst enemy as she struggled to rival Samsanova’s strength, fielding just eight winners and a single ace along with 24 unforced errors.

At the ATP event, British men’s number two Dan Evans lost to Japan’s Yoshihito Nishioka in three sets in the quarterfinals.

After losing the first set in a tiebreak, Evans rallied to win the second set in convincing fashion.

However, he failed to maintain that momentum in the third as the world No. 96 claimed a 7-6(5) 4-6 7-5 win. Emma Raducanu was eclipsed by Liudmila Samsonova at the Citi Open
